Clomid question

I am on clomid for the first time, have a history of PCOS, and have been trying to conceive for over a year. How long till I can expect to ovulate, and when is the best time to have sex for the best chance of becoming pregnant?

I was on clomid for 3 months and finally got pregnant on the 3rd cycle with twins of all things. I too was diagnosed PCOS and my doctor told me because of the cysts there is no way of being sure if it a new follicle forming and releasing an egg or if it is one of the old cysts bursting of which case they are no good. He said give it time and he monitored me every month. I was taking it cd 3 to 7 and o'd right around the 13 or 14 day. it depends on how`soon you take it to how early you ovulate. Good Luck I hope it happens for you really soon.

I'm on my 1st round, too. Some sites say 7-10 days after last pill others say 5-9. I'm only 2 days off so I'm waiting. Very impatiently I might add.

Thank you all for your encouraging words. This has been one of the most difficult times in my life and sometimes it feels like you are alone when everyone else seems to have such an easier time getting pregnant. And my husband (Bless his heart is great,) and wants to have a baby too, but doesnt quite understand the yearning a prospective mother has.

I have a history of PCOS too!! I took glucophage for 6 month before i started 50mg Clomid for 2 cycles. I did not ovulate on teh 2nd cycle at all!! We had to increase the dose to 100mg on the 3rd cycle. I was able to conceive in the same cycle. The good news is I now have the cutest 17 months old B/G twins!!! Hang in there it will happen for you soon.
And YES i was very moody when i was taking Clomid!! VERY MUCH! The ovulation period was the worst. I used to have pregnancy syptms during hte week of ovualtion ( headache, nausea...)

I was diagnosed with PCOS about 2 yrs ago and have been ttc for about 4 yrs. We are now on our 3rd cycle of clomid at 100mg. We are anciously awaiting the arrival of ovulation. It has been a struggle and very stressful, but always stay hopeful and don't get discouraged. We are all in this together and God will get us through it. Thats the way I see it anyway. I wish you the best of luck!!
